We’re working on a checklist for good decision-making this week. Yesterday the first item on our list was…
- Make a decision only when there exist two or more options.
Today I’d like to add #2:
Make a decision when there is a disagreement.
Again, this seems so obvious. But how many times have you simmered and stewed over some disagreement but did nothing about it.
I’ve observed people go for weeks and months (even years) holding resentment, anger, and hurt inside, doing nothing about it.
Make a decision! Either let it go or do something about it. But don’t allow yourself to live in a “pause mode”. That’s no way to live.
